Re: AVR and Display Choice

And as for the Denon 6300 sounds good.

I have three different Denon receivers. I Purchased two of mine from Accessories4less website.... haven't had any issues and save a bit of money.

Re: AVR and Display Choice

So how often do new AVRs come out? Cuz the 6300 came out around august, and the whole line came out early 2016. So is a new model in the works? Wait and get it? Or wait for the 6300 to drop in price?

AVR and Display Choice

Well, i am starting to need a newer one...so i suppose as soon as i see a good price on it. Most of my equipment has been bought about 60% off or more. But i have a feeling i wont see the same treatment for the denon.

What about extra juice. Seems alot of Polk Users have Emotiva. For the fronts and wides what should I use? They are rated for 600hp each. So they got guts. The rest of the system is about 125-150 ea. So dont need juice for them.

And the whole display, thinking of a projector. At 120", when will we see Dolby vision and hdr10 and stuff like the LG OLED. I want the 65" E7, but in my grand scheme of things it seems too small.

And the atmos. If i have a 11.2 can I still have extra atmos added on?

Is Dolby Atmos Moving Away from Front-Wide Channels? Ask the Editors

Thought of your thread when I saw this. May not be specifically relevant, but it's very interesting.

Re: AVR and Display Choice

So my understanding is, that AVRs are capable of only 11.2 speakers for the most part. Which means 11.2, 9.2.2, 7.2.4, etc.

Re: AVR and Display Choice

That is correct, unless you can afford a Trinnov Altitude32.

Some people have managed to use two receivers to drive a 9.2.4 speaker configuration.
